with me is ron allen and joining us is jonathan alter, author and msnbc contributor, and james peterson, professor at lehigh university. jonathan, let me go to you first. you've covered president obama extensively. what kind of mandela influence do you see in him? >> huge influence. as he president said in his statement. he said he would not be who he was without nelson mandela. he followed him from an early age. you may recall when the president was a student at occidental college in california, he took part in anti-apartheid demonstrations. he was a leader on that issue and focused on it. but one of the things that is really striking me tonight is what can americans learn. and american society learn from the example of nelson mandela? i think back to civil rights movement, ghandi with his principle of civil disobedience, that helped to give the movement life. so what is mandela's message? well, today we're hearing even very conservative senators and other figures talking about the spirit of forgiveness that he embody embodied in south africa. my question tonight, rev, is can we import
post. a political columnist and progressive activist. jonathan, let's peck up that quote we just played for obama there saying next year we will have some sort of bipartisan plan on voting rights. i took a step back. are we sure it's going to be bipartisan? are we sure there will be meaningful bipartisan plan. everything i have seen tells me there may be a plan next year. i'm hard pressed to see where it's bipartisan. >> we are saying an eternally hopeful, optimistic president who knows full well that whoever, and especially he's for it, is going to be impossible to get age done. the republicans have made it clear on any issue from the bucket, economy, jobs, health care, immigration you name it they will stand in the way of quote giving him a win. they don't want him to succeed. as we know, there have been two books wren that republicans collude before he was inaugurated to insure he would not be successful. so a president's job is to be hopeful and optimistic. that's what the president is being here, but that's not to say that he shouldn't try. because the president, while hopeful and

legacy, but brat on came up in the policing. i want to go back to one of jonathan's points with the use of numbers to pull people away involved in the turnstiles. that is to use to drive down crime to look at disparities. there is a brand-new movement and the majority of major cities to put together the 50 ever racial profiling and database. that is driven by police chiefs. i think that's the kind of thing if he brings that to new york, that may in fact get it is fears about the taint of giuliani. >> he should be a hash tag. your prominent pronouncement is correct. thank you both. >> thank you. >> stay with us. conservatives have an authority complex in today's top. bl turn to roc® retinol correxion®. one week, fine lines appear to fade. one month, deep wrinkles look smoother. after one year, skin looks ageless. high performance skincare™ only from roc®. take skincare to the next level with new roc® multi correxion® 5 in 1, proven to hydrate dryness, illuminate dullness, lift sagging, diminish the look of dark spots, and smooth the appearance of wrinkles. high performance skincar
's not their job. >> this is one of the issues. jonathan turley with george washington university law says the president has repeatedly crossed constitutional lines. he made recess appointments when the senate is not recess. that is not legal. he declared changes to the law, delays to the law. the law doesn't allow him to do that. in cases he's chosen not to enforce laws like immigration law. is that, is he right? is this a president crossing the constitutional line. >> has a duty to execute the law. in instances with the affordable care act. removal of the cap on out of pocket expenditures he has changed law and doesn't have authority to do. that the president said he can't wait on congress. under our system of government he has to. he has been inconsistent with article two. >> mr. attorney general, thank you for updating us appreciate it. >> thank you. >> when we come back, incredible choices for tonight's video of the day. your choice, your selection is next as we continue tonight on "hannity". we are gao celebrate the union of tim and laura. it's amazing how appreciative people are whe
voted for obama care so blame them for your troubles. as jonathan allen writes, if they aren't aware of the law's upside or can't remember it amid the problems with the rollout, democrats will be holding on to a anchor rather than a buoy which leads us back to the presidential pr pitch and peter alexander outside the white house. you just heard the president's speech. do you think the bully pulpit has lost its power at this point? >> reporter: a lot of people who paid attention to the last couple of months for this white house feel they've heard events not too dissimilar to this multiple times. this is the reboot, 3.0. the white house feels strongly this is the time it's going to work. the president made it pretty clear, krystal, you can make fun e
